The team beat Thompson Okanagan and Vancouver Island U17 on day one. In the game versus the Island, Flyhalf Teo Degianni scored a couple quick trys but then went out with injury. The U17 Tide battled back but the Valley were able to hang on with some hard runs from Ryan Renkers and tries from Connor Byron and Braeden Verleur.

On day two they defeated Vancouver North and Vancouver South in a couple of hard fought physical battles in the hot sun.

This led to a semi final match up against Fraser Valley Central which Valley won 29-14 in a back and forth game. In the final they faced rival Vancouver Island U18. It was a good defensive battle for the first part of the game but Valley final were able to break through and score in the corner when lock Lashawn Berg was able to dive over the line. Flanker Ryan Sharpe was able to add to the lead when he scooped up a loose ball and ran 30 meters in for the try.
